Randi (The Artist Formerly known as Guitar Chick) NEON ANGEL!


Barbara Charley I just LOVE biographies of musicians (dead or alive)!!!


message 3: by Sarah Beth (new)

Sarah Beth Breck @Barbara Charley...So do I. I despise fiction. It's so cool to read about a musician and his life and then listen to his music with the knowledge you have after reading the biography...

"When you know someone's life story everything in their life suddenly makes sense"...unknown


message 4: by Donna (new)

Donna Davis Great idea for a list. But what is Johnny Cash doing here? He sure wasn't a rocker, although given the subscript, I am reluctant to just go in and zap the title. Antoine? What do you think?


message 5: by Jonas (new)

Jonas Quarry Journey Into Beatledom is a great new take on The Beatles songs in the tradition of iconic Rock critic Richard Meltzer, which tells the band's story through their lyrics and songbook.


message 6: by Chris (new)

Chris What about Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin and Sam Cooke?

What do you think?" Johnny Cash was ALWAYS a rocker, from Sun Records until his American Recordings. "Get Rhythm."

Rustic One While admittedly showing my age and the numerous books depicting the mega artist >>>rock and roll did not come into vogue in the summer of love 1967. It did exist beforehand but you'd never know it from this list. From a highly biased perspective, other than the bands their selves , besides groupies and roadies the industries that rock spawned and the practices of many of it's vile and colorful producers and record executives are noteworthy. The record labels fierce rivalry only after they discovered there was a market to be swallowed up. The studios, many of which now serve as museums where those echo chambers reek of historic tracks laid down within their confines. Not a single reference to the nucleus of it all- the blues. Ottis Williams to Carl Perkins Mr Excitement, Jackie Wilson to the Brill Building the finishing school for Detroit's Motown. the bus tours and road shows and the payola scandals. The Chitland Circuit where the primitive delta bluesman played to a teen magazine whose subscription was 5 million-
whose editor had affairs with stars from Dion to Morrison. The venues and that wondrous era of top 40 am radio that re invented itself in video form-MTV. Not a single title of my humble assemblage of around 100 books on rock and roll's history is mentioned here. I could ramble on but a little research probing this vast wasteland of cyber space- and a true quest of rock's history- is somewhat void without exploring a few of these elements. The ones that were so vital to rock and roll Seek onward my children
